Wow do I have an AMAZING story to share with you today!! This woman had a tumor, endometriosis, I.B.S., Diverticulosis, blood disorders, an electrolyte disorder, was in severe pain every day and wasting away…How many people do we know who have been written off by medical professionals saying “There’s nothing we can do”? I have seen this happen one too many times, and the woman in today’s story was told that same thing. Read on to see how she proved…them…WRONG!

Hi, my name is Christy McKinney and I have been eating Sunrider foods for 3 1/2 months, so I am a “Baby Sunrider”.
I have been sick for many years but 2008 is when I really started feeling that I could barely move. Everything in my body hurt. At times I couldn’t even get enough energy to eat.
My friends and a few Doctors said it was sad to see someone dying right in front of their eyes and there was nothing they could do. I was sent to so many doctors.
I had been dealing with medical issues since 2001, severe disc degeneration in my neck (which caused migraines) and in my lower lumbar, arthritis in many places, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, facet joint arthritis. My sciatic nerve is pinched in two places. I have had many spinal injections in both areas and they even tried to burn the nerves in my lower back to help take away the pain but that was not successful. I have polymorphous light eruption and a lot of different allergies. I had a hysterectomy in 2001 and also a lumpectomy in 2000.
I have severe endometeriosis that has spread to other organs. I had liposuction in 2006 and that was when the worst part began. The doctors had found a pituitary disorder and a tumor growing on my pituitary gland with high Prolactin levels along with abnormal hormone readings.
They sent me to an oncologist and then to Moors Cancer at UCSD and they found some blood disorders but they couldn’t work out why I could barely move.
I had fevers of unknown origins and I lost weight so fast they were very worried.
They found colon polyps that were adenomas and told me I had diverticulosis (along with the I.B.S I’ve suffered from my whole life).
In 2010 after many different ER visits they finally found a potassium disorder.
I could not hold potassium or sodium in my body which was why I was so drained and could not move and everything on my body ached. “Ached” is a very mild word for the pain that I felt. I was a walking heart attack waiting to happen.
From that day on I have been in and out of the ER trying to get my body in balance but it was proving to be very difficult. In August 2011, I had a laminectomy and a spinal cord stimulator implanted in my back to decrease the back pain. That was only 20-30% effective. I still had to be on pain medication and potassium medication that made me sick.
In June 2012 my neighbor saw me barely making it to the mailbox. She came right over with Sunrider food (Nuplus, Fortune Delight, and Quinary) and told me she was not leaving until I ate it. So I did. After all, all I wanted to do is go to bed at 6pm which was my bedtime, staying up later was too painful.
I was AMAZED at what I felt 30 minutes later. It was like my body had been starving for the nutrients and I was giving it what it needed for so long. The next morning I called her and placed an order then a week later I started the Biggest Winner.
Since being on the Sunrider foods my pain management doctor has been prescribing the food and I have been able to return to doing activities with my family that I haven’t been able to do in many years, church being one of them.
I am so happy I have found a way to feed my body what it needs so I can heal the way God intended our bodies to heal. Oh and by the way, we eat the NuPlus, Calli, Fortune Delight, Quinary, and a Sunbar every day.
The most amazing part of my life-changing experience with Sunrider is hearing my eldest child tell me, “I will always be grateful to Desirae for bringing you Sunrider because now I have my Mom back”.
Thank you to all the people involved with Sunrider and God for changing my life in ways I never thought could be possible!
